Poland will demand from Kyiv to review the historical issues before the entrance to the European Union. Particularly, it is the issues of Stepan Bandera and “the problem of minority of right-wing nationalists”. The Minister of the Foreign Affairs of Poland Witold Waszczykowski claimed this at the interview to wPolityce.
‘Our message is extremely clear: you will not enter the Europe with Bandera. We tell about this loud and silently. We will not repeat the mistakes of 1990s years when there were the problems in the relations with Germany and Lithuania. I mean the status of the Polish minorities in these countries. We have such experience and we will firmly demand from Ukraine to get all things done before Kyiv will ask the membership in Europe’, he said.
The Polish politician Jaroslaw Kaczynski came out with the similar statement. He claimed that Ukraine will not enter the European Union until it maintains the cult of personality made of Stepan Bandera.
